(odds taken 1848 GMT, Tuesday 4 October)

Preston have yet to win at home this season, drawing four and losing two. In their previous home match, they were beaten 2-0 by high-flying Sheffield United. Can they get back on track with three points against struggling Albion on Wednesday?

West Bromwich Albion Preview – Can the Baggies pick up a huge three points?

West Bromwich Albion have been the underachievers in the Championship up until now. Many tipped Steve Bruce’s boys for promotion this season, but the Baggies have won just one of their opening 11 games. Like Preston, Albion have also drawn seven times in the league.

Since thumping Hull City 5-2 at The Hawthorns in August, West Brom have failed to win since. They have gone on to lose three and draw four league and cup matches.
